Blichmann Beer Gun is awesome. I used to fill 90 bottles in about 60 min. If the beer is pouring right (properly carbonated) you can do 2-2.5 bottles a minute.

Cheers!

I have been trying something based off of what Jamyme mentioned but I am thinking about the Beer Gun in the future, just wanted to hear from people that had used them. Thanks!

the other option (best in my opinion because there is little to no foam) is a the Blichmann Beer gun. it is $100 but works great and is easy to clean, and another great toy, good for growlers too.

you could also use a counter presssure filler.

Foxx CP ( http://www.brewgadgets.com/p-1206-counter-pressure-bottle-filler.aspx )

both work but i personally prefer the beer gun, and that is what i use.

All you need is a picnic tap and a racking cane. Cut one end of the racking cane at a 45 degree and the other end keep flat. Keep the full length or most of it as well. Then turn your co2 down to 4. Make sure to bleed out excess pressure. Put the racking canei nto the picnic tap and pour. It will foam and you need the foam. It gives room and also pushes outoxygen. When its full pull out tye racking cane and cap while foam is coming out. It will take a couple times to get it but one you figure it out it works well. Have stored some before longer than 2 months with plenty of carbonation.

What works best for you to bottle beer from your kegs? Has anyone had good luck with the blichmann beer gun? I read mixed reviews about them online. I'm not looking for long term storage, just a way to bottle to draw down kegs and to give away beer.
